Build ID: 20171130010840

Steps to reproduce:

click on "+" icon to open a new tab


Actual results:

The new tab contents (top sites, highlights) are limited to the middle of the window. The left and right thirds of the window are left blank.


Expected results:

The items should be arranged in twice as many columns when the window has that width. The entire window width should be utilized. Alternatively, the number of columns could be made configurable in the new tab preferences dialog.

I understand that the current number of columns is designed to work well with mobile devices, but this is no reason to make it awful for desktop users.
